you may be able to get that seal out with a slide hammer , drill two holes into the seal , screw in screws that will fit tight , weld a "L " shaped piece of metal to a nut that will screw onto the slide hammer threaded end , take a grinder with a thin blade and cut a notch in the end of the " L" , kind of like a claw hammer slot for removing nails , work from one side to the other on the screw heads
Thanks for the tips guys. Think I'm going to live with the oil drip this hunting season and tear into it this winter. Once I get something apart it tends to be apart for a while.I have a feeling the hub will need to be replaced too... its bound to be grooved pretty deep from the seal lips wearing it. I don't think Honda greases any motor seals at the factory.
Hey @retro my headlight connector is back together finally too :nerd
